Web Coding

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)

In 2021 we refreshed our site design using the free to use W3.CSS (check it out here W3.CSS Tutorial), no license is necessary. Also see their main site W3Schools.com for web developers, covering all the aspects of web development.

We recommend looking at this useful ccs style guide which explains CSS styling and the use of span and class tags.
